    2. If the person whose calendar you want to open is in your organization, enter their name, and then click OK.
    3. If the person isn't in your organization, enter the URL to add a calendar from the Internet, and then click OK.
  • You can’t use Outlook Web App to give someone else permission to change your calendar, but you can use the Delegate Access feature in Outlook to give other people in your organization permission to make changes to your calendar and to respond to meeting requests on your behalf. See Allow someone else to manage your mail and calendar to learn how to set up Delegate Access using Microsoft Outlook 2010.
